Look at how many people it takes to broadcast esports competitions

From a WaPo article about new first person shooter Valorant:

Broadcasting a first-person shooter can be extremely complicated, as the Overwatch League has demonstrated.

Included in this staff were six people whose whole job was to decide which in-game characters and camera angles to show.
